Abstract

With the discovery of a new homologous series An+1BnX3n+1 (A = Ce, B = Co, X = Ge), the low melting main group elements, indium, tin, and bismuth, were evaluated to determine how different concentrations will influence the outcome of intermetallics syntheses. Different flux molar ratios were evaluated, and the systematic synthetic approach led to a fresh perspective on the flux role in the growth of intermetallic compounds of the series An+1BnX3n+1, including the new series members Ce3Co2Ge7 and Ce4Co3Ge10. The structure determination by powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction methods are discussed.
